No Freedom for You!

Jackie Chan Says 'Chinese Need to Be Controlled'

"I'm not sure if it's good to have freedom or not," Chan said. "I'm really confused now. If you're too free, you're like the way Hong Kong is now. It's very chaotic. Taiwan is also chaotic."

Chan added: "I'm gradually beginning to feel that we Chinese need to be controlled. If we're not being controlled, we'll just do what we want."

It's an interesting observation. Freedom in America has worked as long as the people adhered to Judean/Christian values and it has not worked to the extent that those values have been lost over time. If a people are not willing to govern themselves they require a more intrusive government to avoid chaos.
